Check your radiators to ensure winter warmth

Our engineers have shared some simple steps you can take this autumn to make sure your radiators are working, ahead of the colder winter period.

Try adjusting your radiator valves to see if you can get them to heat up while the boiler is on. If you aren’t seeing a change in temperature after adjusting the radiator valves and the radiator isn’t getting warm you could have a problem with the valve.

This can sometimes simply be that it has become stuck and a gentle tap on the side of the valve will often release the pin inside.

Another common problem is air trapped in the radiators.

Check your radiators regularly for cold patches and, if there are any; bleed them if you have a radiator key.
